Would this fix a scratched CD?

Would this work to fix a scratched CD?"The Original Lens Doctor" (As seen on TV!)
It depends on whether the scratches are just on the surface, where the stuff might help, or deep enough to destroy the pits that represent the "ones" and "zeros". Of course, the error correcting encoding of the redbook CD will "fix" quite long disruptions of the digital data stream.
p.s. I'm serious here. I honestly wonder whether this would be easier and/or more effective than some of the CD repair kits and machines. It would seem that actually filling in the defect is an option potentially superior to using a CD repair machine to grind away the rest of the plastic to make the surface even with the scratch. Anyone's thoughts would be appreciated, especially if someone knows a reason it would NOT work.
well..."as seen on TV" would be my first red flag.

Eldartford makes a good point...are the scratches just on the surface...or are they deep enough to damage the layer where the information is encoded.

Personally...I would think that what might apply to a pair of eyeglasses would not apply to a cd.

Also...with the cost of stuff related to our "hobby"...would it not just be cheaper to replace the damaged medium (CD) with a new one. For example...if a cd is $15 and the disc repair machine was $150...then I would assume that one would need plenty of damaged CD's to make it a worthwhile expenditure. Not to mention...will it work?

I hope I made sense here because I just had my first few drinks in a looooong time...lol.

My thoughts exactly.

No worries - you made perfect sense. Go ahead and have a few more drinks - no doubt you'll probably be drafted by Mensa soon thereafter :))

RE: Ellery's comments. That's why I use "shudder" cheap Disk Doctor. At $30, its worth it to fix an unplayable CD and also works on DVDs and computer CDs. If it doesn't work I buy a new one. So far, I have not noticed any impact on sound but have not done detailed AB tests (if in fact those are worth anything).
Thanks for all of the responses so far. I probably won't buy the thing for the reasons listed above, unless the urge to experiment gets the better of me.

Can you post a link to the product you use? The advanced Google search didn't narrow it down enough.
Md- Its called SkipDoctor. J&R has it for $25.
Why is it that I never experience a CD that skips? Exceptions are...

All CDs began to skip on my ten year old Mission CDP. I gave the CDP a decent burial.

I have have had a CD skip in my car when I hit a really bad bump in the road.

When CDs were first invented I had several with obvious defects when brand new. I returned them.

I have faith in the error correcting encoding of the digital data on the CD, so I NEVER clean them. I suspect that excessive cleaning may be a problem.

My present disc player is a Denon 2900 (Underwood Mod). I also have a Pioneer DV-45A, which presently plays mostly DVDV discs, and it also performs flawlessly. A Rotel CDP that I used in between the Mission and the Denon never had a problem.

Maybe I'm just lucky.
